Higher Quality Renters

It is certainly possible to get a bad tenant out of your home once they are in, but it’s a real hassle and you are so much better off never accepting them in the first place. A thorough screening process results in reliable tenants that:

  • Pay on time
  • Rent longer
  • Put less wear and tear on the unit
  • Generally cause less problems

We have seen thousands of applications and know how to quickly dig for the real facts about candidates and analyze that information for warning signs. By allowing us to handle the screening, you will also be shielding yourself from rental scams directed at owners, and discrimination lawsuits resulting from an inconsistent screening process. This kind of experience takes time, and insomuch as it means avoiding bad tenants, scams and lawsuits it is arguably one of the most significant benefits a property management company will provide.

Fewer costly and time consuming legal problems

Veteran landlords know it only takes one troublesome tenant to cause significant legal and financial headaches. We are armed with the knowledge of the latest landlord-tenant laws and will ensure that you are not leaving yourself vulnerable to a potential law suit.

Shorter vacancy cycles

A property manager will help you perform three critical tasks that affect how long it takes to fill your vacancies:

  • Improve and prepare the property for rent
  • Determine the best rent rate.
  • Effectively market your property

Better tenant retention

While it’s easy to see the effects of lost rent, there are other equally serious problems with a high tenant turnover rate.  We have a time-tested tenant retention policy that ensures happy tenants with lengthy stays in our properties..

Tighter rent collection process

Collecting rent on time every month is the only way to maintain consistent cash-flow, and your tenants need to understand this is not negotiable. We will be the bad guy who has to listen to excuses, chase down rent, and when necessary, evict the person living in your property.

If you let them, your tenants will walk all over you. We have to be trained to follow every part of the lease or deal with the consequences. As property managers have an advantage because tenants realize that we, unlike the owner, are only doing our job and are obligated to enforce the lease terms.

Assistance with taxes

We will as organize the necessary forms and documentation to make tax claims. Additionally, the property management fees themselves are also tax deductible.

Increase the value of the investment

Preventative maintenance is achieved through putting systems in place that catch and deal with maintenance and repair issues early on, before they grow into larger more costly problems. This requires a written maintenance check program, detailed maintenance documentation and regular maintenance visits. We can also offer you suggestions and feedback on upgrades and modifications, both how they will affect the rent you can charge, as well as their impact on maintenance and insurance.

What will you do to rent my house?
We give it maximum exposure while it is for rent and we carefully scrutinize all interested parties. 

What, specifically, do you do to qualify a tenant after they have applied to rent my house?
This is the most important aspect of the successful management of rental property. Application processing is typically done by us. An applicant must demonstrate a history of being a good, responsible tenant or homeowner as well as meeting credit standards. We have an screening service that we use that can provide information on past eviction, convictions and a general credit score.  The fee for this service is charged to the applicant.  We will require two most recent pay stubs, bank information and if need be tax paperwork for proof of income.

How do you make sure the tenant is taking good care of my home while renting?
There are several ways your property manager has to know this. Above all, careful tenant selection from the outset protects your property from being rented to irresponsible people. During the lease term, we may have occasion to enter the property for repair or maintenance reasons and will use that opportunity to have a look. If we are fortunate enough not to have any repairs or maintenance at your property over an extended period of time, your property manager will schedule a preventative maintenance walk-through to make sure the air filter is being changed, that the smoke alarms have batteries and that there are no unreported problems at the property.

What do you do if they are not taking care of my property as they should, or you discover unauthorized pets?
Your property manager gives the tenant an opportunity to correct the situation and usually they will. If a problem persists, we will make a decision based on that specific situation with owner advisement.

Do you hold some of my money for repairs? How much?
We will hold back $300 per unit in your account so that we always have funds to pay our vendors quickly. This is easy to track on the monthly statement.

When do you mail the owner’s checks and statements?
Owner’s checks are mailed out on the 5th of each month. If you are paid by ACH you will see a credit to your account as early as the 6th of the month.  Depending on holiday schedules and tenant payments, your check may be delayed.  Most months, you will have your statement emailed by the 11th.

Who holds the tenant’s security deposit?
All security deposits must be held in our deposit trust account.
